This recipe just happens to be cheap too!
Assemble everything in the crock the night before. Put it in the fridge. In the morning, take it out before you leave for work or school and when you come home - dinner's ready! I do this almost every time. It just makes it easier.

I use our crockpot all the time. I actually had one that I used so much it gave up the ghost so I went and got a new one. Of course I use it to make chile and soups and the standard pot roast but I also use it to cook whole chickens too.


Lemon chicken:

Salt and pepper whole chicken
Juice one lemon and zest it about a tsp.

Place chicken in crockpot

Pour lemon juice over chicken along with zest.

Cook on low 8 hours or until done.

Get a good cookbook. They have many tasty recipes out there. I tend to use the ones that call for all natural ingredients not use a can of this soup with a can of this prepared thing a ma ***. I find that those recipes don't work out as well as the ones that use fresh ingredients.

Take as many potatoes as you need, wrap each in foil, poke with a fork, stack them all in the crock with NO LIQUID, and cook. I cook them the same amount of time as the mealoaf. When you come home, you have an entree and a side...DONE. If you want to get crazy about it, in the third crock you can make dessert...talk about easy...Have fun!
There are large double urn crockpots out there (walmart has them) that would work great for this recipe of yours. A couple of other little tips that I'll pass on for roasts: take a sharp knife and make incisions so you can slip garlic cloves in there (or olives, capers, chorizo, whatever you like), it permeates the meat for a great flavour. Before you put a roast in the crock put it under your oven broiler on the low rack for 10~15 minutes a side, it really adds flavour and eye treatment for a great end result. One more thing, I use a turkey baster and baste roasts with the juice every hour or two if I am around to do so. How great is it to have the house smell good All day or to come in from the outside and have that scent hit you. Mmm mmm mmm.

Copied and pasted from another site. My girlfriend made it and loved it. She ended up adding ham cubes the second day for a meal.

Crock Pot Macaroni and Cheese

1 8 oz box large macaroni
1 stick of butter
3 cups sharp (New York Sharp) cheddar cheese
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1 ½ cups homogenized milk (whole is best)
2 eggs
salt
pepper

Grease crock pot or spray with Pam. Cook macaroni in salted water and drain. Pour into crock pot. While still hot, add butter and cheese and stir. Add homogenized milk and stir. Beat eggs and add evaporated milk to the eggs. Add this to macaroni mixture. Can sprinkle top with grated cheese.

Cook on low for three hours. DO NOT open lid during this time.

This was given to me by one of the members of McCarter Presbyterian Church (PCUSA) in Greenville, SC where I was married.

Default Crock pot dinners

I thought it would be interesting to share some of our crock pot dinner ideas. Lets be creative and see what we can come up with, other than beef stews and stroganoff ideas..I have a great chicken cacciatorre recipe that I will post.. I love my Pot, but don't have many ideas, they seem so boring!!.. Whats better than throwing it all together, and enjoying a cocktail while dinner prepares itself! Please share..

Oh man.....we do thighs all the time in the crockpot. Just de-skin and trim the thighs. Pat dry and season with salt and pepper. Place in crockpot and cover with your favorite bbq sauce (or anything really). Cook on low until meat falls off the bone!! Serve with coleslaw and cornbread.
